It's so freeing to be able to start the new year and not pretend like one of my resolutions is to lose weight. My belly is actually allowed to get bigger. That's a good year in my book!
The giant bummer was that we had to throw out the ENTIRE batch of sausage balls. They tasted sweet? gag. I realized I used buttermilk pancake mix instead of regular. They were terrible. I do stuff like that ALL the time. I always ruin food. It's sad, really.
All my Christmas is down and now the house looks nekkid. Usually it's still lingering around until the middle of January, but this year I was ready to clean it up! We had an icky weather day last week, so Marcus and I stayed home and got it done. It took ALL day long! Now I need to dust, vacuum and clean, but I don't wanna. I am hoping the "magical" 2nd trimester feeling is going to kick in real soon.
*And I have a prayer request:*
I have a blog friend, Fabiola, and her new year has been a nightmare. She lives in Brazil and she commented on my blog last year that we were living similar lives. We both had been married about 10 years, with no kids, but were both trying to be parents for a long time. I was so thrilled for her when she announced her pregnancy this fall. Then I couldn't believe it when I became pregnant about a month after her. Crazy.
Well she had to go into the hospital on New Year's Eve, because she was leaking amniotic fluid. The doctor's told her it is all gone now and there is no way the baby can survive. Please lift Fabiola and her husband up in your prayers. Thank you!
I pray you all have a fabulous and blessed New Year.
